Description

Caribbean Cask has been matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, and then ‘finished’ in casks that preciously held Caribbean rum. To create the ideal finish Malt Master David Stewart, filled American Oak casks with his own blend of select West Indian rums. When he judged the casks to be ready, the rum was replaced with the 14 year old spirit and the wood was put to work adding the final touches. The result is an exceptional single malt whisky with the traditional smooth, honeyed character of The Balvenie, married with notes of toffee and a hint of fruit, with a warm, lingering finish.

NOSE Rich, sweet and creamy toffee on the nose combines with fresh fruit notes TASTE Rounded with vanilla and sweet oak notes, with fruity character that develops with time FINISH Soft and lingering

A new addition to the permanent Balvenie range. Lovely bright gold color. Layers of sweetness (the characteristic Balvenie honey, along with vanilla fudge, nougat, and rich toffee) peppered with dried spice and a hint of tropical fruit (papaya, guava, tangerine). Nice viscosity with good grip on the finish. I really like the balance and complexity of this whisky. A very solid effort and the price is right.

Concentrated aromas of sawdust/wood plank and brown sugar are prevalent; toasty, rum-like, molasses tastes match up well with sweet bouquet.
